This is a very nice hotel in Sale. The walls are ornamented and you really get the look of morrocan style. Arches, tiles, funriture and fabrics are all made to complement this morrocan Riad. There are not many rooms, but I would choose the suite, with windows into the court and out to the street. There is also more privacy... More

I really enjoyed my weekend get-away at Riad La Belle Etoile. The manager Ragaa was especially friendly and helpful. She prepared a nice breakfast each morning on the pleasant terrace. My room was was on the terrace level with very nice sea view and tastefully decorated in blue and white to match its name "Essaouira". I also had an excellent... More

This (even quite expensive) place is just awful. The Riad itself is a nice place, but it needs cleaning, something against the smell and the huge cockroaches in the room. The staff there does not care at all about the customers. We spent a week there and it was impossible to sleep because the staff (!) was shouting and laughing... More

A traditional riad, just behind the medina walls. We parked in last gap in the alley behind: the hotel website said it was guarded, but no-one was there when we drove away. The one girl there was efficient, fetching us from a nearby street (I cannot see how it would be possible to find the hotel from a map) and... More

Our 1 night stay at the riad in Rabat, was excellent. We were there for the Mawazine music festival, and we arrived into Rabat from Essaouira late at night. The gentleman welcomed us into the riad despite the time and was very kind. The room was spacious, relatively clean (though a little dusty and my allergies went crazy) and the... More

It was our last night and we wanted to be near the airport. This worked. It took is a while to find it but it is a very nice riad. It was clean and the service was above expectations. The owner left our breakfast out the night before as we had a very early flight. A bit noisy but overall... More

Riad is just amazing! Location is perfect, there is no point to stay in Rabat as Sale is just next door :) (getting to Rabat takes 10 min by tram or taxi) rooftop terrace is beautiful and has nice sea view. Food is great and staff are helpful and friendly! Highly recommended!
